Photos: The Best of Songkran in Bangkok
Celebrating Songkran in Bangkok was one of my favorite adventures during my six months in Southeast Asia.
And while it’s incredibly hard to get good photographs while everyone is throwing water at you, I managed to get a few good shots. Here are my favorites.
Flowered shirts, water guns and the back of a pickup truck — the ideal way to celebrate Songkran!
It wasn’t so bad getting drenched with the warm water hose at Wild Orchid Villa! Ste attacks here.
Think the water fights are off-limits indoors? Think again. (And Darren, you really do give us the best poses.)
Thanon Rambuttri — one street over from Khao San Road — is filled with thousands of people, as are the surrounding streets.
This little boy was the tiniest Songkran participant I saw, and absolutely adorable with his little water gun!
Taking a tuk-tuk? You might as well be painting a bull’s eye on yourself.
Me, Ste and Darren — badass Songkran warriors!
Motorbikes? More like moving targets. (Please don’t hit any drivers in the face — you don’t want to cause an accident!)
Who says you can’t look stylish while soaked to the bone?
I love when I introduce different groups of friends and they become friends! Ste went to uni in Poi‘s hometown, and they bonded.
This crafty group picked a spot where they can easily duck beneath the wall — well-played, crew, well-played!
The final Songkraning — Darren, Ste and I get attacked with clay on the final night of Songkran. It was a great three days.
